Produktbeschreibung
Married at a young age to an older man , neither he nor she doubted that he would predecease her; but she discovers that there is no preparing for the loss a beloved. Their marriage was a passionate 35 year love affair, as if the odds against its longevity engendered a rare intensity. She discovers that love has no boundaries, grief is not eternal and ?her husband's motto "Life is a love story" is so very true. Ascher writes passionately about her unlikely marriage, her husband's illness and death and her ensuing sorrow. A witness to the insanity that grief visits upon its victims with a seeming determination to destroy, she gazes straight into the eye of grief and does not blink. In time she moves beyond that grief - her voyage out.  Ghosting is, by turns, moving and funny, tender and brutal . The wonder of Ghosting is that Ascher, like Montaigne, calls forth Everyman.  About previous books: Pat Conroy on Dancing In The Dark: "One of those books that wakes you up to the life you have failed to live,...What a wonderful book." Publishers Weekly on The Habit of Loving:? "With her sharp, unflinching eye, she discovers wonder and truth at our very doorsteps." Boston Globe on Landscape Without Gravity: "Her honesty touches the reader's heart, opens the scars of old wounds, and helps heal them...wrenching, insightful...compelling" Eudora Welty on Playing After Dark: "Barbara Ascher has a serious mind and the gift of a light touch."
